A thirty (30) day comment period on the DRAFT Substantial Amendment CDBG-DR Action Plan will begin on Friday, February 14, 2014 and end on March 20, 2014. On November 18, 2013, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) released a Federal Register Notice announcing the second allocation of CDBG-DR funding to Connecticut as appropriated by the Disaster Relief Appropriations Act, 2013 ( Public Law 113-2). Connecticut’s second allocation is for $66,000,000 to address infrastructure and mitigation, as well as any remaining unmet housing needs as a result of Superstorm Sandy.
